We typically collect this information through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, file information, and similar technology (collectively, “tracking technologies”).

We, and our third-party partners, use tracking technologies to automatically collect usage and device information, such as:

• Information about your device and its software, such as your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, device type/model/manufacturer, operating system, date and time stamp, and a unique ID that allows us to uniquely identify your browser, and other such information. We may also work with third-party partners to employ technologies, including the application of statistical modeling tools, which permit us to recognize and contact you across multiple devices.

• When you access our sites from a mobile device, we may collect unique identification numbers associated with your device, mobile carrier, device type, model and manufacturer, mobile device operating system brand and model, phone number, and depending on your mobile device settings, your geographical location data, or we may be able to approximate a device’s location by analyzing other information, like an IP address.

We use the data collected through tracking technologies to: (a) provide and monitor the effectiveness of our Website; (b) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, usage, and demographic patterns on our website; (c) diagnose or fix technology problems; and (d) otherwise to plan for and enhance our Website.
